"This is an authoritative and broad survey on the fishes inhabiting California's inland waters. Professionals and amateurs will find valuable information on the ecology of California's six major drainages and the 132 fish species, both native and exotic, that call them home. Population distributions, life histories, social behavior, and feeding habits are all meticulously examined. . . . At the same time, Moyle highlights those critical differences that make each species indispensable and worthy of protection. . . . Moyle includes excellent species-specific illustrations."--from "Ten Books Every California Naturalist Should Own," "California Wild" "Western freshwater fishes provide interesting and difficult problems in taxonomy, evolutionary biology and conservation ecology. Moyle's timely revision of "Inland Fishes of California addresses these issues and provides a wealth of information on the fishes of California. As expected of Professor Moyle, the book is also a status report on the state's native fishes and an eloquent plea to reduce the losses. It will, no doubt, be required reading for anyone interested in western fishes or aquatic conservation."--Douglas F. Markle, Oregon State University "Publication of this work has long been anticipated and will be welcomed by a wide audience in California and elsewhere. It will provide, as did the first edition, a base-line from which an array of people from laymen to scientists will benefit."--W.L. Minckley, co-editor of "Battle Against Extinction: Native Fish Management in the American West

The bamboo fly rod still represents the pinnacle of the fly-fishing art; its apparent simplicity and delicacy belie the craftsmanship and strength that are the hallmarks of all great rods. A growing number of people have tried to learn the art of making bamboo rods from a shrinking number of secretive craftsmen. The revised and expanded Handcrafting Bamboo Fly Rods is the definitive reference for beginners and experts alike. Wayne Cattanach begins by explaining the qualities that distinguish bamboo from all other materials: It has a tensile strength akin to steel, yet it is very light. He describes the process that will take anyone from lengths of hard, raw bamboo to a beautiful finished rod with clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, including how to find the best supplies; select tools and materials; make heat treaters and binders; cut culms; straighten bamboo strips; plane and stagger strips; bind strips; apply finishes; mount the reel seat, ferrules, and tip-top; and much more. This is surely the most thorough book available for those who wish to make and fish their own bamboo fly rods.

One of California's most remarkable wetlands, Suisun Marsh is the largest tidal marsh on the West Coast and a major feature of the San Francisco Estuary. This productive and unique habitat supports endemic species, is a nursery for native fishes, and is a vital link for migratory waterfowl. The 6,000-year-old marsh has been affected by human activity, and humans will continue to have significant impacts on the marsh as the sea level rises and cultural values shift in the century ahead. This study includes in-depth information about the ecological and human history of Suisun Marsh, its abiotic and biotic characteristics, agents of ecological change, and alternative futures facing this ecosystem.

This beautiful, eclectic collection of first-person stories from bamboo rod-making legend Hoagy B. Carmichael explores various important parts of his life and how they tie into the sport of fishing. Growing up in Beverly Hills with a famous jazz musician for a father, young Hoagy wasn’t exactly destined to become a fisherman. But by the age of nine he had a subscription to Field and Stream magazine, and regularly rode his bicycle to the local “sport shop of the stars” in town. With strong and exciting prose, Carmichael takes readers through these early years and those that followed, where he not only honed his passion for fly fishing, but also his skills as a rod builder, fly fisherman, and author. In addition to reflecting on his life in fly fishing, Carmichael gives readers a fascinating look into the history of rod making and competitive fishing. He also describes encounters with some of the biggest names in the art of fine bamboo rod-making, such as Ed Fody and Everett Garrison. Side Casts is an artfully crafted and meticulously researched book that expertly weaves together elements of memoir, history, and sports writing. It will be a welcome addition to any fishing enthusiast’s bookshelf. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen.
